Frequently asked questions

Apply for listed building consent

To apply for listed building consent you will need to submit an application form. The process is similar to applying for planning permission and most applications will take eight weeks to process. 

Communicating advice and guidance to applicants is an important part of the process so you may wish to contact the conservation officer to discuss your proposal before submitting. 

Please check with the conservation officer if you are not sure if planning permission will be required. It is recommended that all applicants read the 'Listed building guidance notes' in the downloads sidebar. 

When submitting your application please include:

• Three copies of the form

• Your checklist, drawings and maps 

If you are applying for demolition works we will need nine copies of the form. When completed, the forms should be signed by hand; electronic signatures will not be accepted.
